Pop-up Opera's little miracle

Pop-up Opera - Doctor Miracle
Pop-up Opera, the company which specialises in performing opera in all sorts of unusual spaces, is popping up again with performances of Bizet's Doctor Miracle. Written when the composer was 18, Bizet won a competition organised by Offenbach. For their performances Pop-up Opera has extended the piece slightly, with music from Bizet's La jolie fille de Perth and Carmen. Directed by Darren Royston, with musical director Maria Garzon, the result should be a fizzing evening of commedia dell'arte fun, at least judging from previous performances. The run starts at the Bull in Highgate on 4 March and finishes on 3 May at the Notting Hill Mayfest. Along the way they manage to take in a tunnel under the Thames, a couple of barns, a winery and the Minack Theatre in Cornwall. See their website for full details.
